In order to keep the information accurate, this will be the only thread on this recall. I will update this initial post with up to date information, and all relevant follow-up posts will be below. You are welcome to comment in this thread only, please do not start a new thread.
Aprilia has issued a recall for a number of Aprilia RSV4-R's and RSV4 Factories. The recall requires replacing the complete engine. While the information is still preliminary, we will update you with all the information available to us, as soon as we get it.
Aprilia Italy has issued the recall campaign, and Aprilia USA is expected to release the letter to dealers tomorrow, and mail letters to registered owners as well.
Aprilia USA has stated that there have been no failures and this is purely a precautionary recall so that there are not part failures in the future. We have not yet been informed as to what part is at issue.
We have also been informed that all bikes on the road in the USA will have engines available within the next two weeks, if not earlier.
We should know more tomorrow, and we will post new information as it becomes available.
